    Yeah I emailed and called them Monday morning, no response until now. $200 USD plus shipping and a 1-2 month wait... I had bad experience with polyurethane bushings, but if I don't want to get those eBay junk then looks like Whiteline is the only option left. $160 USD shipped through Amazon, so actually not a bad deal.

    Just realize Whiteline uses polyurethane bushings instead of rubber. Not a fan of polyurethane, so I will try to source a pair of Hardrace. However, I found this brand I never heard of called TruHart also makes one for 2/3 the price. Have you guys heard of it? http://www.truhartusa.com/Rear_Upper_Control_Arms_for_89_94_240sx_Skyline_p/th-n201.htm

    Thank you all for the information. Yes I would just like to get back to factory spec, no setup for track or anything else. My car came with Nismo S-tune coilover, which only lowers 10mm so should not be a big issue for camber. Front components are all Nismo, but but rear control arms are still factory, so they are 28 years old now. Given how old the rear arms are, I thought just getting new ones would fix the camber, but my alignment guy had doubts because of how little adjustment the eccentric bolt can do. I have never heard of Hardrace, they seem to offer a good range of products, but trying to buy them in the US appears to be a pain. I think I will go with Whiteline. Even though Whiteline only labels their upper controls arm to fit S13 and Z32, they are identical to R32 correct?
  4. Recently got an alignment for my R32 GTR, all still within spec except left rear camber. Still riding on old factory upper control arm, and the eccentric bolt is maxed out. They told me a new bushing will not make up enough of the 0.5 degree difference even if I get new OEM upper control arm. Is that a fair statement? How about the Nismo upper control arms? All the adjustable aftermarket options I find all use solid bushing, but I still want to use tradition rubber bushing, is there no such aftermarket option?
  5. Since you are running single turbo, have you considered single throttle plenum? https://plazmaman.com/product/nissan-rb26-single-throttle-body-billet-inlet-manifold/
  6. Sure thing! There are instances that one would say oh crap! after miss reading something, but this is a rare instance which you get say oh good! 😉

    I know the last post is almost a year old. I would very much like to know if more people have tried the Tarzan box since then? From what I can find, the Tarzan box's biggest improvement over regular G sensor is under braking, and that's pretty much it. The acceleration out of corner is claimed to be improved but appears to be not much of a talking point.
  9. Not sure why all the guesses about Poncams vs Procams. Tomei's own website says it's the same.

    So given the older protruding tube design, Plazmaman still seems to do well? I actually ordered my Plazmaman a week ago, but still interesting to read all the discussions. However I don't consider Plazmaman a "cheap" option, for me at least. With international shipping a TrustGReddy costs about 2/3 of a Plazmaman, but that's a price I'm willing to pay if it has better quality and performance.
  11. Koyo has lifetime warranty, and they are easy to deal with. Same with Mishimoto, which even offers collision warranty. Both of them cost about half of other options I looked at, but I went with Koyo because they are slightly thicker at 48mm. I am sure you have done this, but I think it's worth the time to double or triple check if the whole system is bled properly.
  12. TXSquirrel

    So Plazmaman's protruding tube and fin is actually worse than bar and plate (or plate and shell)?
  13. Is Koyo not a popular option there? Their 48mm is well priced and pretty much the go to radiator if keeping factory fan and fan shroud. https://frsport.com/koyorad-hh020214-48mm-aluminum-racing-radiator-89-93-skyline-gt-r-r32-rb26dett

    Where is the said IAT data for Plazmaman shared? I don't think it's in this post...
